The Kentucky Wildcats are getting set to leave for their tip to the Bahamas.

The team will return to the Atlantis on Paradise Island beginning Monday for a four-game, eight-day trip from Aug. 6-13. They will train on the island and play four professional teams during a five-day period.

Needless to say, the next week is going to be a fun one for UK fans as they get an early look at what the 2018-19 version of Kentucky Basketball looks like.

Ahead of the trip, UK has been posting more practice highlights that are only getting fans more excited and anxious for the Bahamas games to begin:

How well he does in this regard will be one of the more intriguing things to watch this week.

Sophomore point guard Quade Green and sophomore center Nick Richards also talked about UK’s preparation for the Bahamas and how they’re becoming leaders for this team:

To top it all off, UK just released a new photo gallery of all the players before we see them in action this week:
